(Sprint, Verizon, Telus)
Now with XDA_UC Support!
WM6.5.3 w/Threaded Email--See Video
This is my own custom ROM that I have been working on in private for a few weeks. I get a lot of requests to share my setups and ROM preferences, so here you go.
This ROM has a lot of custom tweaks and optimizations meant to make the device as quick as possible (listed below). In fact, I think you'll be quite surprised at how responsive it by way of comparison.
It was built on a heavily modified SSK (Scott's Simply Kitchen), so please feel free to donate to him for providing that platform. I also borrowed a few ingredients from Calkulin's kitchen. Having said that, a majority of what was done to this ROM is not found in either.
This ROM has been beta tested by numerous folks over the last few weeks, notably BigD5, who was indispensable for feedback. I'd also like to thank Fards, Mr. Makk and especially Redd214 & Rawdikrik (for custom Action Screen).

Give it a try people its really not that hard to load a ROM just be sure you have your TP2 unlocked and ready to load. This ROM is smooth, fast and very stable I have been using it for a couple of week in one form or another and this final release is great. I have tested many different ROMs from all the big name chefs and this ROM by far is the fastest and most stable that I have seen. So if you are a first time flasher or an addict like me you will like the speed jump you get with this ROM. Good luck and happy flashing

After listening to the latest podcast, I decided to try flashing for the first time using your rom. All appears to have gone fine. I guess I am a flasher now.
So after a flash, I can then reinstall any apps like Kinoma? I installed most of my apps to the storage card thinking I was save space. I didn't realize the program memory area is separate. Any apps installed on the storage card also need to be re-installed, right?
And probably on the device instead now?
Thanks for the great work.

Hi all, thanks for having me. This is my first WM phone and after a couple of months of use I decided to try a flash.
Worked flawlessly and really like the new look. It does seem a good bit faster on most things and I'm glad all of the unwanted apps are no longer there. Lots of extra storage for stuff I DO want !
I'll be donating for the hard work ! Thanks !

In one of your older roms did the HTC qwerty soft keyboard have the letters appear above the keys when you press them? In the latest rom, with the threaded email, which is killer, the keys don't appear above the "press" anymore?

I haven't flashed a rom in a while. Not since I got rid of my touch diamond 6 or 7 months ago. This rom installed easily. Great job Mal!
I was laying in bed after I just put my phone on the charger watching some TV and all of a sudden we hear "Ding, ding do dong" (jetsons door bell I think) and someone say "Oh hell no, whats up dog!" out of the blue. My wife and I looked at each other completely baffled asking what was that. Then I remembered that I had flashed my rom earlier that morning. I grabbed the phone and started flipping through notifications and found it. Very funny Mal. LOL.
I noticed 1 thing. When I press FN + Left Arrow (web). I get and error stating it can't find OperaL. Is there a quick fix or regedit to get it to work with opera 10?
